- The extent of succinylation of beta-lactoglobulin (beta-Lg) increased logarithmically with increasing concentration of succinic anhydride. The surface pressure of 27.5% succinylated beta-Lg was higher than native beta-Lg but higher levels of succinylated (50% and 100%) reduced the surface pressure. Overrun and foam stability were reduce following succinylation. The electrostatic interaction caused by the addition of 100% succinylated beta-lactoglobulin (0.5g/100 mL) to a solution (2.5%) of native beta-lactoglobulin at pH 4.0 improved overrun (47%) and foam stability (61%).
